THANK YOU! to everyone who took part in Focus Ireland's Shine a Light Night, proudly supported by Bord Gáis Energy. This year, business leaders, companies, and people all over Ireland slept out in their homes, gardens, or workplaces on Friday 16th October. Everyone came together virtually from their sleep-out to stand in solidarity with people experiencing homelessness. We were overwhelmed with the support from people all over the country and we have had our most successful #ShineALightNight EVER! A huge thank you to everyone who took part, raised vital funds, and came together in solidarity with people experiencing homelessness.
8, 702 people are currently homeless in Ireland amidst a global pandemic. 2,620 are children. Since the COVID-19 public health emergency in March, Focus Ireland has moved 531 families and 1,146 children out of homelessness nationwide. Together, we have raised funds that will directly support our service that help people experiencing homelessness every day.
